The Wall

I placed the first brick
and you the second,
no place is left on earth!
So what?
Don't we have the right
over open space too
I put the third brick
you put the fourth one
and the bricks proliferate!
Now it is difficult to say
which is bigger--space or brick
no space is left on this earth
to place any more bricks
let me place it within your heart
and you reciprocate!
And the waves of love
will cease to caress
the banks of our hearts,
for the heightening walls ensure
that these waves can never cross them!
